DOMAINE PIERRE THIBERT 2017 CASE
Pierre Thibert is a ‘garagiste’ no more! And we’re here to report on big changes in this small-production, top-quality, self-made domain. Renting vines in the appellations of ‘Bourgogne’ and ‘Passetoutgrain,’ while still working outside his own domain for another winemaker, the Domaine Pierre Thibert got off to a modest quiet start. Soon though Pierre was able to bring some Chorey-les Beaune and Aligote vines into his domain. Some purchased, some ‘en fermage’ (a sort of ‘share-cropping’ current in Burgundy), the list of wines grew slowly at first. Finally came the vines in Nuits St. Georges and Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru.
At present, he oversees about 10 acres of vines. Pierre takes pride in his single-vineyard appellations. But everything he touches show the mark of great respect for Nature and attention to detail in the vineyard.
It's a mixed case of Pierre Thibert's range and versatility. Classy, small-production Red Burgundy: I should have you right there.
It's a mixed case of 3 different Thiberts, 4 bottles each PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED.
Chorey les Beaune 2017
Delicate and supple, rich and full of Pinot Noir character. Crimson with classic red and black fruits set off by earth and spice. Good and subtle tannic structure finishing long on fruit
Nuits St Georges 2017
Black fruits layered on a complex background of coffee and spice, with fine tannins already melting in. Structured but still fluid, a great texture. Complete through the mid-palate with a long finish on cherry fruit and structure.
Cote de Nuit Villages 2017
Alive, alert with a tension that makes you makes you almost overlook the pretty black fruit. There's mineral here too, keeping the whole thing focused. There's a voluptuous density of fruit lurking in this young frame. Balanced and again, way above its appellation.
